on . Posted in Archives of Activities 2014

  On 16 to 22 March 2014, NAHRIM’s delegates led by the Director General, Datuk Ir. Hj. Ahmad Jamalluddin bin Shaaban, together with the Director of Coastal Management and Oceanography Research Centre, Ir. Hj. Mohd Radzi bin Abd. Hamid had a technical visit to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Hobart - Tasmania, Australia. The purpose of the visit was to establish contact and cooperation with the CSIRO in the proposed review study on the impact of climate change to sea level rise of the coasts of Malaysia and also the development on capacity building.

  On March 17, 2014 during the trip to Tasmania, NAHRIM’s delegates has managed to arrange discussion and a briefing by Dr. Andrew , Dr Christine and Mr. Warwick from Water Technology, Melbourne who had experienced conducting study on the impact of climate change to sea level rise and adaptation in Western Port and 90 Mile Beach , Victoria. Victoria is one of the states in Australia which is expected to be affected by climate change on sea level rise in the future. There was also time to discuss on their experienced in dealing with the replanting of mangroves and coastal adaptation in Victoria.

 On 18 March, 2014 NAHRIM’s delegates had departed to Hobart, Tasmania and on the next day 19 March 2014 they have taken a four hour car journey to Table Cape – north of Tasmania to visit the centre and facilities of Tasmania Rainwater. After a short discussion with Mr. Allan Page the owner of Tasmania Rainwater, NAHRIM’s delegates were brought to the location of the catchment and rainwater collection. Discussion and explanation by Mr. Allan Page on how the system works is a valuable knowledge and experience for NAHRIM in their future planning to produce its own similar product.

  Finally discussions, visits and briefing session with the CSIRO’s senior officer Dr. John Church, Dr. Kathy, Dr. Keith, Dr. Peter Oke and led by Dr.Ian Cresswell was held for two days i.e 20-21 March 2014. On the first day after an initial meeting NAHRIM’s delegates were taken for a joint visit using the cruise to the Peppermint Bay and other surrounding coastal bay to explore the effects on beach erosion, sea level rise and adaptation work. During the visit an informal briefing sessions were also held to explain the effects of climate change to their assets of which already felt in Australia.

  On the second day of discussions, NAHRIM’s delegates have been asked to give a brief introduction of NAHRIM and activities undertaken. The discussion is then focused on the proposed collaboration with CSIRO and NAHRIM especially on the terms of reference for the review study on impact of climate change to sea level rise on the coast of Malaysia and adaptation based on the latest findings of the IPCC - AR5.

   In conclusion, the main objectives of technical visits has been achieved. The bilateral relations with the CSIRO is expected to launch more active and efficient research cooperation in sea level rise and oceanography in the future. Apart from that the opportunity of meeting the key personnel of Water Technology, Melbourne and Tasmania Rainwater is a valuable knowledge and experience gain which will be an added bonus to NAHRIM in coastal adaptation measures and commercialisation of rainwater products.
